"One by one, death caught up with the fastest men alive, and all the speed
in the world couldn't save them. No matter how fast you are, the Black Flash is
always faster." —The Flash
SUMMARY: With time frozen at the moment of his arrival in
our dimension, the specter of death known as the Black Flash stalks a
powerless Wally West. Help arrives in the form of Jay Garrick, Max
Mercury, and Jesse Quick, though the three speedsters discover that
there may be no way to beat Death into submission. As Max Mercury
prepares to sacrifice himself to the Black Flash, Wally takes action.
Still reeling from the apparent death of Linda, Wally is desperate to
save his friends from the same sinister fate. His passion reignites his
connection to the speed force. Soon the fastest man alive is racing to
the end of time with the Black Flash in hot pursuit! If the Flash can
outrun his otherworldly stalker he knows that Death will cease to exist
at the end of the time. Wally pushes himself to run harder and faster as
the universe grows old around him, the Black Flash right behind him
every step of the way. As the universe dissolves, all signs of life
passing with it, so too does the Black Flash. Triumphant over death,
refusing to accept fate, Wally plunges into the speed force and emerges
with Linda Park in his arms. The Flash has outrun death itself and saved
his one true love. Later, with troubling reminders of their own
mortality lingering over them, Wally and Linda embrace and reflect on
these events. In the blink of an eye Linda finds herself standing in
Paris with the fastest man alive before her, offering a wedding ring and
asking for her hand in marriage!
